  • Germination In Seeds

    How does unused motor oil affect the percent germination of Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) seeds? Research Question How does unused motor oil affect the percent germination of Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) seeds? Background Germination in seeds is when the seed coat breaks revealing the embryo or sprout of the plant (Biology Online). For a seed to properly germinate it must have water, oxygen, and the correct temperature (BBC). Each type of seed has a specific range of conditions like temperature, amount of water and light that will allow them to germinate (BBC). To germinate Romaine (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) seeds, the temperature of the seeds cannot reach above 30 °C (Heirloom). It…

  • Seed Germination Conditions

    plant grows out from a seed. The most common example is the sprouting from a seed of an angiosperm, a flowering plant, or a gymnosperm that are seed-bearing plants. For a seed to germinate, few external conditions are in need to be met as well as internal conditions of the seed such as its dormancy, viability and its vitality to sprout. When these internal conditions are met, the external conditions at the time of seed germination plays a big role. First of all, enough water is needed. It is…

  • Brassica Rapa Seeds

    Germination of Brassica rapa Seeds Germination is a vital stage in a plants life, but it also plays a significant role in other animals’ (including humans) life cycle. It is the process in which a new plant grows from a seed. Due to the fact that plants are autotrophs; they use the process of photosynthesis to transform sunlight and make their own food. Germination occurs in gymnosperms and angiosperms when the seed is using its own nutrients, before it is able to photosynthesize. “The plant’s…

  • Effects Of Hydrogen Peroxide On Seed

    Hydrogen Peroxide Help or Harm Seeds? Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a common household item. It is made of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. It is most commonly used in small concentrations to clean small cuts and scrapes by killing bacteria. This antiseptic kills the bacteria by tearing down their cell walls. In the last few years, hydrogen peroxide has been added to pesticides. This means that the food we consume has been growing in materials that contain hydrogen peroxide. We have a…

  • Radish Seed Experiment

    experiment is about the effect of microwave radiation exposure on the percent that radish seeds germinate. The hypothesis in this experiment is if the radish seed is placed in the microwave for 8 minutes, then the percent of germinated seeds would be the lowest out of all the times. This experiment is important because if something happens and radish seeds are exposed to microwave radiation people would be able to know if the radishes would germinate if they knew the time they were exposed. This…

  • Grass Seeds Grow Experiment

    microwave they were about the same temperature and texture. For level 5 (500 W), the grass seeds were in the microwave for 30 seconds and were slightly warmer coming out of the microwave. Also the grass seeds felt very slightly moistened. After that, I did power level 9 (900 W) for thirty seconds. The grass seeds were noticeably warmer and slightly moist after coming out of the microwave. Next, I…

  • Gestil Bean Seeds Experiment Essay

    lentil bean seeds was affected by the environmental aqueous solutions, which was made up of either a table sugar, dextrose or a control. It presented that there was not a statistical difference between the table sugar or dextrose aqueous solutions in comparison to the radicle lengths since the P values were less than 0.05. Although, there was a statistical increase in radicle length with the comparison to the control. If these seeds were able to reach the average seed germination process in ten…

  • Importance Of Grass Seed Germination

    Grass seed germination process and the important influencing factors Description: the germination is the most helpful process to grow a seed to a seedling and so on. There are various influencing factors which help the grass seed germination process to speed up. The way plants function are more complex one than any other organisms can be found in the world. Trees grow through the seeds and thus it needs to be germinated properly. With the help of germination, one can attain various benefits…

  • Gram Seeds Embryo Research

    Gram seeds embryo is called dicotyledons. Seed germination is the process i which the seed breaks a part and the embryo inside to grow with the help of water and a nutrients from the soil seed normally begins to germinates then they get an appropriate range of soil,temperature and when water and oxygen are available.During germination the seeds absorb water either through the micropyle(pore like opening) it is present or through the testa(outer seed coat) when it is permeable.The entry of…

  • Vicia Faba Seeds Essay

    40 “Yates” Vicia Faba seeds were selected and measured using a millimetre ruler, ensuring that all selected seeds were kept within a size range of 3mm in diameter. Each one of the 8 pots was filled with 8dm3 of soil and given a label using the marking pen, indicating the concentration of gibberellic acid that would be poured into it. 5 Vicia Faba seeds were placed in each pot and buried into the soil at a consistent depth of 1cm. The distance between each seed and adjacent seeds was kept at a…
